Problems and Purpose

With Democracy Earth, our goal is to bring politics to the 21st century means working in upgrading three aspect of Democracy : Identity, Legitimacy and Representation. Democracy.Earth is an application (web, mobile) that uses the potential of the blockchain to create a new kind of institutions which governance system will be incorruptible, auditable and decentralized. Citizens anywhere in the world will be able to create their democracy, propose bill, vote or delegate and debate on them.

Influence, Outcomes, and Effects

First, Identity:
What differentiates valid elections from surveys is strong identity validation. We are working with pioneering decentralized protocols for identification, so no single corporation (like  Facebook) or government (think Estonia) owns your credentials. Only you are in control.
 
Then, Institutions:
Whether it's a club, a student center, your football team, a corporation, a workers union or even a big city: these are all institutions.  For them to be open and democratic, governance rules and membership must be stated under incorruptible technology. See  how the blockchain grants it. 
Also, Budgets:
Institutions execute projects:  a collection of tasks that require funds and approval. After you join an organization that meets your interests, pitch projects defining tasks and pricing. Funds are securely stored using bitcoin and granted upon approval.
 
And finally, Delegations:
In the age of connected societies, voting to have representatives for 4 years is absurd. Peer democracies lets you elect among friends and people you trust. Legitimacy must emerge bottom up rather than top down. It's possible: we've seen open source democracy take off.
